Kerala Yellow

O C H R E WILD collection consists of naturally dyed rugs that are made in Bengal using centuries old techniques. All rugs are made entirely by hand from the yarn making and dying, to the intricate weaving and through to the finishing. Each rug is unique, sustainably created and ultimately, intimately connected to our shared earth.

Fibers:
JUTE – Jute fibre is 100% bio-degradable making it environmentally friendly. The fiber, naturally yellow hued with a silky shine, is known as the golden fiber. Both strong and durable, it is an ideal choice for entrances and hallways.

Dyes:
TURMERIC – The turmeric plant belongs to the same family as ginger. It is a direct dye producing a golden yellow. However, turmeric is one of the more fugitive yellows and can fade rapidly in strong sunlight.

LAC – The scale insect secretes a sticky resin known as lacand. It is this viscous fluid that contains the red dye. The colorfast reds range from crimson to burgundy and give a soft, warm hue.
